Default Peddie Calls Vince a Mamas Boy and other ramblings

Quote:
“I had a new general manager that I had started to become really worried about,” Peddie remembers. “I'm thinking if I pull the plug on this then I've meddled, then I've basically fired the general manager. In hindsight I wish I had. It set back the franchise years.”

Being witness to both the rise of “Vinsanity” early on in his tenure, followed by the falling out Carter had with the team and city years later, Peddie was present for nearly all of his career in Toronto.

He observed that Carter was a “Mama's boy” who's life was dominated by the family and entourage he surrounded himself with early on.

As to why Carter was unable to meet the lofty expectations levied upon him early in his career, Peddie says it may have come down to work ethic and internal drive.

“There are guys like Kobe, Jordan – they're killers and Vince didn't have that,” Peddie said, while also noting that the team's trainers would report Carter having leg issues heading into the off-season, which he would then fail to rehab during the summer months.

He definitely should have fired Babcock during his first week. Only good thing Babcock ever did was draft Charlie V, and he even turned out to be a flop after BC got TJ from Milwaukee. Peddie admitted his mistake in the article and acknowledged this, so at least he's taking accountability on that.

He also found Jose....

Still boggles my mind to think that people wanted him to turn around a capped out team with a disgruntled star in ONE season.

When has that ever been done? In any sport?

Has another team taken a chance on him since then?

His tenure here was a disaster thus making him a disaster. pretty much the biggest failure of a GM this team has ever had.

I don't recall anyone expecting that when he was the GM. On the contrary, I expected a GM of an NBA team to have enough knowledge to know as much as a 16 year old in grade 11, who got their info from nbadraft.net and pick Iguodala with that 8th pick. I still remember that minute or so before stern came out and I must have said Iguodala 30 times. And then it happened.

Not a soul expected this guy to turn around the franchise so quickl and I'm not sure where that was deduced from. We did however not expect that his moves would leave the franchise hurting for years.

I'll admit Jose was a good find. That I can't dispute.
